ABOUT THIS COURSE

These are exciting and challenging times to lead in Secondary Science. Science faculties have the most rewarding subject to teach, and benefit from many developments and resources for teaching on social media. However, Science can be a more difficult subject to lead than others within a secondary school with a complex curriculum offer, shortages of qualified subject specialists, health and safety responsibilities and practical work with large teams and non-teaching staff to lead.

This course will consider what excellence in a Science department looks like, and the role of the Head of Science in helping to achieve and maintain such excellence. It will examine strategies for successful recruitment of students, for optimizing teaching and learning, and for managing teachers experienced and inexperienced.

This course is designed for current Heads of Science and for anyone interested in holding such a position or in contributing to the management of a Science department.
